AUDITIONS FOR REAL WOMEN HAVE CURVES!

REAL WOMEN HAVE CURVES Directed By: LYDIA BLANCO GARZA STORY: Set in a tiny sewing factory in East LA, this is the outrageously funny story of five full figured Mexican American women who are racing to meet nearly impossible production deadlines in order to keep their tiny factory from going under. And while they work, hiding from the INS (Immigration and Naturalization Service), they talk.....about their husbands and lovers, their children and their dreams for the future. The story is told from the point of view of Ana, the youngest among them. Just graduated from high school, Ana dreams of getting out of the barrio and going off to college and becoming a famous writer. Although she needs money, Ana doesn’t like working at the factory, and has little respect for the co workers, who make fun of her ambitions, and what they consider her idealistic feminist philosophies. However, Ana keeps coming to her job and chronicling her experiences in a journal. As the summer unfolds, she slowly gains an understanding and appreciation of the work and the women, eventually writing an essay that wins her a journalism fellowship which will take her to New York City. This play, a microcosm of the Latina immigrant experience, celebrates real women’s bodies, the power of women, and the incredible bond that happens when women work together. saturday auditions: 2pm-5pm cold reading from the script sunday auditions: 6pm-8:30pm show opens july 31st and runs through august 30 email: blancocasting@gmail.com with any questions.
